I Have More Money Than Lenny Dykstra

Justin July 8, 2009 0

That’s not bragging. You probably do too.

It always seemed strange that a proudly classless ballplayer who was always covered in tobacco juice stains would grow into a financial genius.  And apparently it was:

Lenny Dykstra, the former star center fielder for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies Major League Baseball teams, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, court records show.

The 46-year-old has no more than $50,000 of assets and between $10 million and $50 million of liabilities, according to a petition filed Tuesday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Central District of California.

I think there’s a saying about water always finding its level that seems appropriate here. Also, this is another big win for CNBC’s Jim Cramer, whose initial support turned Dykstra into a financial star.
